Dusters are a popular trend lately. They started popping up during the early fall and winter, but I’ve been seeing them throughout the spring as well. Our generation can’t take credit for this trend though…They actually originated in the 1920s! Women would throw them on when traveling in a car. The modern-day duster coat comes in multiple styles — belted, buttoned, short, long…
This leads me to my next point.
Every stylists’ favorite word…
They’re appropriate in nearly every situation, from casual to formal. Dusters pair effortlessly with almost every ensemble! I love the idea of them because I see handfuls of people abusing leather jackets when going out with friends, whether it’s downtown or out to dinner. Wearing the same leather jacket just gets old and repetitive! Most dusters are made of a lightweight material, so they don’t make you feel too hot when you’re using it to layer.
So, with this post, I dare you to start mixing your second layers up and start getting a little more creative. Double doggy dare you. Now you have to.
